Overly large breasts can have a negative effect on your posture, in addition to causing uncomfortable physical symptoms like back pain or a limited ability to wear the clothes you want or play certain sports. If these issues are bothering you, a breast reduction can significantly boost your quality of life.
Breast reduction is usually carried out under a general anaesthetic and will involve an overnight stay in one of our partner hospitals. In most cases, the procedure takes about two hours to complete and can be performed with a variety of incision placements.
During your consultation, your surgeon will talk you through all of the relevant details regarding your procedure, including incision placement and what you can expect in terms of scarring once your recovery is complete.
In some instances, the nipple will need to be repositioned in order to maintain a natural look, which will be discussed with you prior to your operation. This can sometimes result in a loss of sensation to the nipple.
